LAYTON, Utah — NUAMES High School in Layton has lifted a shelter-in-place protocol that was briefly in effect Tuesday.

NUAMES High is part of the WSU Davis Campus. A WSU spokeswoman told FOX 13 someone sent several text messages to the SAFE UT hotline threatening violence at the school.

"Weber State police were able to identify the caller through an IP address and make an arrest without incident. The individual has been booked in the Davis County Jail," a news release from Weber State University said.

Read a message sent to the parents of NUAMES High students:
